On September 28, 2016, the Children Beyond Our Borders, Inc. (CBOB) student chapters at University of Florida, Florida State University and University of Central Florida will be participating in CBOB’s National Tabling Event. The theme of this tabling event is “Who Lifts You Up?” This National Tabling Event will serve as a new CBOB Student Chapters tradition for years to come!
Students and faculty who pass by the student chapters’ tables will be able to write the name of a person who inspires them (lifts them up) on a balloon! The balloons are representations of people who spark our motivation to pursue our dreams. By writing the name of a person who lifts you up on a balloon, you’ll be thanking them for the advice and influence that they have instilled upon you.
The Student Chapters will also be by raising money for chapter events, IAMCBOB Scholars and Bound For Peace service trips by hosting bake sales at their respective locations! “Who Lifts You Up?” is a brilliant way to kick off the school year and it is also a remarkable opportunity to spread the CBOB message! The CBOB Student Chapters work toward igniting student interest in the educational, social wellness, community service and youth empowerment aspects of Latin America and in our local communities.
Kassandra Cabrera, Public Relations Chair for the FSU Student Chapter:
“We are hoping for this event to bring the members of our FSU community together while letting them know what CBOB is all about. I think this event will generate a lot of activity because we are approaching “tabling” in a different manner that will hopefully spark the curiosity of students on our campus.”
